It’s hard to believe that you can go so fast that you wind up way behind but that is exactly what happened to me. I’d like to ask your forgiveness for dropping off the map and not keeping you updated as to what the Lord has been doing in and through me. The last two months have been absolutely thrilling and although I am confident in my calling, it’s in the last few months that I have felt like I’ve been in the epicenter of God’s calling and purpose for my life here at Saving Grace World Missions. It started at the beginning of June with an incredible trip to South Asia. I want to thank you all so much for partnering with me through prayer and financially to make this trip possible. I was able to travel to all three of our Bible College locations in South Asia. I was able to visit with our national leaders, encourage our national missionaries and be a part of setting curriculum for the next two years. The Lord is truly doing and amazing work in South Asia! The teams that He is bringing together, the properties and buildings He has supplied, and the students that have gathered for the next two years of Bible college classes truly reminds me that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what we can ask or think. The stories are to big and the experiences to varied. We visited the Bible college campuses and journeyed to the villages where our graduates are ministering, they are witnessing to completely unreached Hindu people groups which are hearing the Gospel for the first time. We even saw one lady give her life to the Lord! I could not possibly write about it all in an update letter. So I’m making myself available to share personally with anybody who wishes to know more about the work in South Asia as well as my experiences there. Please contact me and I will gladly make the time to get together with you.
Upon returning from South Asia I was able to attend the Pastor’s Conference at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa for a week of refilling and refocusing. After that I journeyed to Mexico to join the youth of our church in serving at a special-needs orphanage. This was an absolutely incredible trip as well.
On both of these trips I was able to connect with Saving Grace World Mission’s missionaries. Although communicating through technology has been successful and beneficial to our missionaries the overwhelming and consistent positive feedback from actually being with them in their living rooms and sitting and talking with them, praying with them, laughing and crying with them in person is a priceless experience both for them and for me. Missionary care is what I was called out of my career to do here at SGWM. And It would not be possible without your partnership. So again I would like to thank you all so much for joining with me and helping me fulfill the calling the Lord has upon my life
I am still in need of people who wish to partner with me financially.
